President Trump on Monday said “much was accomplished” in his meetings with world leaders in France, where his brand of “nationalism” was met with disdain – but complained again about US allies’ spending on defense, NEW YORK POST reports.
“Never easy bringing up the fact that the U.S. must be treated fairly, which it hasn’t, on both Military and Trade,” the president began in an early morning volley of tweets.
“We pay for LARGE portions of other countries military protection, hundreds of billions of dollars, for the great privilege of losing hundreds of billions of dollars with these same countries on trade,” he continued.
The U.S. government at least should charge for its defense services, as President Donald Trump has stated. Department of Defense is not well-prepared to defend Americans. For that reason Congress created a new agency, the Department of Homeland Security. The Pentagon devotes the bulk of its resources to projecting power abroad to defend other nations, mostly wealthy industrialized states, and rebuild failed societies, especially in the Middle East.
“I told them that this situation cannot continue – It is, and always has been, ridiculously unfair to the United States. Massive amounts of money spent on protecting other countries, and we get nothing but Trade Deficits and Losses. It is time that these very rich countries either pay the United States for its great military protection, or protect themselves…and Trade must be made FREE and FAIR!” ~ President Trump

The easiest way for states to avoid paying America for its efforts would be for them to defend themselves. MAGA!
